I would like to announce that we have a very special guest with us! Ladies and gentlemen, my mother is FINALLY reading my blog! Make sure you all leave a comment to welcome her!

After almost five years of "Hey, Mom, I have a blog!" "Mom, did you read my blog?" "Why don't you go read my blog, Mom?" she is finally reading it! Her friends have been reading for years now (hi, Sue! *waves*), but not my mom. It was about a year or so ago that I resigned myself to the fact that my mother would never read, and I stopped asking. (She keeps saying she is too busy to log onto the computer, and considering the fact that she has a V-E-R-Y S-L-O-W dial-up connection, I really can't say that I blame her.) In fact, I think it was shortly after my week-long visit at my parents' white farmhouse in Illinois two years ago (wherein I attempted to blog from that same dial-up) that I gave up asking her to read. Oh, the torture of waiting for a web browser to load. I didn't want to inflict that kind of pain on my very own mother.

But now she's inflicting it on herself! Hooray! :-)

I love you, Mom!

It all started one day a few months ago when she had nothing better to do. She decided to read, and she got hooked. What can I say? I'm very addictive. Now, she checks frequently, and if I haven't posted often enough she calls me to complain -- in a nice way, of course. "Missy, I checked your blog, and I can't find any new blog posts. Are you still writing?"

So I've made an executive decision. I'm going to post more often. Did you read that, Mom? It's just for you! Don't you feel special now?

And, since you haven't been reading all along, and you don't know how to go back to read from the beginning, I'm going to link to a few posts that I know you will enjoy. (Just click on the tan words below called a link, read the post that it takes you to, then click the "back" arrow button on the top left corner of your screen to get back to this post. Repeat for each link below.)

I'm Thankful

    Sometimes I wish my mom read my blog and sometimes I don't. It's a funny thing. Like, what if she knew that the portrait she painted of us loves to hang on the wall when she visits, but likes to play recluse behind the couch the rest of the time? I don't know. Kinda torn there... Good thing I haven't blogged that, just to be safe...

    Yay! I found out that my grandma was reading my blog. But when I wrote that post about how that adorable goat would be delicious, she stopped reading it. ^_^

    Seriously!? She's only just started reading it? Luann, you have been missing out, I've been reading Missy's blog for years now.

    She needs to publish it as a book so you don't have to log on to read it.

    Nice to see you here!!

    I love reading your daughter's blog and newspaper articles. Very talented and entertaining daughter you have there. But you already know that! ;-)
